Man Jailed After Frightening Elderly Woman
Be careful what you do when you’ve been drinking. A young Haughton man found out the hard way…after he scared an elderly female last night. Bossier sheriff’s deputies say 23-year-old Derek McLendon got drunk at Bodcau Recreation Area and got into an altercation with someone there. At around 10:30, he showed up in the 1200 block of Highway 157 and went to the back door of a home. He started beating on the door, yelling, “Let me in!” An elderly female inside was frightened, and called the Bossier Sheriff’s Department. When deputies arrived, McLendon smelled of alcohol, was confused and admitted to drinking. He’s been charged with criminal trespass, disturbing the peace drunk…and on a warrant from the DeSoto Sheriff’s Office.
